Our friends from Gutensite in California moved to Bologna a couple years ago. We stayed with them and experienced a bit of expat life.
Scuola - learned about Italian school systems and homework that looked impossible
Portici - experienced the beauty of covered walkways after forgetting an umbrella
Cestina - the edible cup for gelato that is not a cono
Morbida - does not mean morbid or anything related to death, but “soft”
Mostra - an exhibit of delightful and creative works of art
